A few years ago, headphone maker Master & Dynamic teamed up with legendary camera maker Leica for some specially-designed headphones. If you enjoyed that partnership, then you will be pleased to learn that both companies have decided to work together again for new wireless headphones and earbud designs.
A few weeks ago, a video surfaced in which it compared Apple’s new iPhone 11 Pro against a $7,500 Canon professional camera. It was quite a tricky test which only meant that it was in the iPhone’s favor, as if you can’t tell the difference that clearly, then obviously Apple is doing a killer job with the camera on its iPhone.
Several years ago, Leica tossed their hat into the mirrorless camera ring when they launched the Leica SL camera. Now four years later, it looks like the company finally announced the successor to the SL in the form of the SL2, Leica’s latest attempt at a mirrorless camera where it comes with a bunch of new features that might make it worth the upgrade.
Leica’s cameras aren’t exactly known to be cheap and have typically been priced well out of the range of many photographers. However, if you’d like to get your hands on a Leica camera, the company has announced a new M rangefinder-style camera that is one of its more “affordable” offerings.
Back in 2015, Leica announced its Leica Q camera. It represented an interesting new direction for the company as it would essentially compete with other compact offers like the Sony RX1 and Fujifilm’s X100 series of premium compact cameras. If you liked what you saw but thought that maybe a successor would iron out the kinks, you’re in luck as Leica has since officially announced the Leica Q2.
Being a journalist in a war-torn country is a dangerous job because while it is generally frowned upon to engage in combat with journalists who are simply trying to do their job, sometimes it cannot be helped as they can get caught in the crossfire. Italian photojournalist Gabriele Micalizzi recently found himself in such a predicament, although thankfully he walked away relatively unscathed.
Leica fans have long been waiting for a successor to the original Leica Q. It has been almost four years since that camera was launched so it’s about time that a successor hit shelves. That’s likely going to happen on March 6th and ahead of the new camera’s announcement, the Leica Q2 has now leaked online.
Leica cameras are famed for several things, one of them being their picture quality, and the other being their price tags which generally speaking tend to make them way out of the price range for many a photographer. However if you wanted to own your own Leica camera, you might be in luck.
These days pretty much all digital cameras come with a display on their back. After all this is one of the main advantages a digital camera has over analog, where you can immediately see the photo that you’ve just taken to decide whether or not you need to take another one and make further adjustments.
Leica cameras are pretty expensive and so are its lenses. However if you’re hoping to potentially save some money on the body of a Leica camera, then you might be interested in a new camera launched by French startup called the Pixii camera. This is a digital rangefinder camera that will come with a Leica M-mount.
These days a lot of digital cameras come with Bluetooth and/or WiFi built into them. The idea is that by offering a wireless connection, users will be able to transfer photos wirelessly to computers and mobile devices, and in some cases, some apps even allow users to trigger their cameras from a distance, acting as a remote shutter button.
Last year Leica launched the M10 digital rangefinder camera and now fast forward a little over a year later, the company is back with an update in the form of the Leica M10-P, which according to Leica was designed to be discreet. This is thanks to a new mechanical shutter system that is almost inaudible.
Huawei invited us to visit their partner Leica headquarters in Weltzar, Germany, to show us what the legendary camera maker is all about and to discuss how they managed their engineering collaboration to deliver the AI-powered triple-lens camera of the P20 Pro smartphone.
There are plenty of compact cameras available in the market today, many of which offer users long-zoom lenses for those that like to get up close and personal. However if you have the cash to splash and wouldn’t mind getting a new digital compact camera, Leica might have something for you with the Leica C-Lux.
